Explosion at the King's Bastion, Portsmouth, on Monday last, October 1844

Explosion at the King's Bastion, Portsmouth, on Monday last, October 1844. A fatal accident...As the Artillerymen were re-loading one of the guns...the charge went off, and blew one of them to pieces and the other was so horribly mutilated that he died soon afterwards. The guns upon this bastion are 32-pounders...to fire a royal salute requires each gun to be loaded five times and one six. It is usual to use the worm to clear out the gun, every second charge, and it is supposed some fire had remained in the chamber....Miller was blown into fragments, and Walker had his thigh bioken, his arm blown off into the moat, and his body otherwise disfigured. The remnants of the victims were conveyed instantly to the hospital of the Royal Marine Barracks...An inquest was held on the bodies of the unfortunate men...and the jury returned a verdict of "Accidental death"'. From "Illustrated London News", 1844, Vol I

A bomb explodes on the day of the wedding of King Alfonso XIII and Victoria Eugenie of Spain, Madrid, 31 May 1906, (1910). The most remarkable Press picture ever obtained - The actual exploding of the bomb thrown at the King and Queen of Spain'. Librarian Mateu Morral threw a bomb hidden in a flower bouquet from his hotel window as the royal procession passed. Alfonso XIII and Victoria Eugenie were unhurt in the assassination attempt, but 24 bystanders and soldiers were killed and over 100 others were injured. When Morral was discovered two days later he shot a police officer and killed himself. The attempted regicide became known as The Morral Affair. From "The Strand Magazine, an illustrated monthly", Volume XL - July to December 1910. [George Newnes Ltd, London, 1910]
